Conversation: Reckoning Stories, Transforming Our Futures: Repairing the Harm of Eugenics in California

Tamika Middleton Virginia Espino Ena Suseth Valladares

Description

Illuminating the recent anti-eugenics win in California, of a reparations program to repair the decades-long state-sanctioned harm inflicted on survivors of reproductive abuse, this discussion will spotlight the production of “No Mas Bebes,” a feature film about the sterilization of Mexican mothers in Los Angeles in the sixties and seventies. ¬†Reproductive Justice organizers, from California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, will speak about the powerful campaign and what it will take to reckon with the past in order to create non-eugenic futures.
